A gift from God,
A gift of love to us.
With your soft brown hair,
Your rosy face
Brimming over with God's good grace.
When I gaze into your eyes,
I begin to realize
That love for you is filling my heart,
My sister, Little Brown Eyes.
When I gaze into your little brown eyes,
I hope the little brown eyes in my future--
The ones who say "Tuck me in,"
The ones that brim love so pure--
Will be a lot like yours.
(c)2011 Perry Elisabeth
Perhaps this doesn't read well as a poem, but be assured it works well as a song. It was written for my youngest sister, Elizabeth. Now I'm looking forward to meeting the "little brown eyes in my future" in about 6 weeks. Time will tell if they are brown or blue, but either way, I will love them!
